A Massapequa father who was driving erratically with his two young sons in the car, was arrested for DWI under Leandra's Law Wednesday, police said.
Carlo Guercia, 35, allegedly had oxycodone pills in his car.
Several park workers and civilians told police they saw Guercia leave his infant son unattended at about 1:15 p.m., cops said. He also allegedly slapped his 3-year old son in the face, grabbed the boy by the neck and shook him.
Witnesses told cops that Guercia told the boy to "shut up" and loaded the children into his car and tried to leave as officers from the Seventh Precinct arrived in the park, police said.
They observed him weaving the car as he tried to leave, according to police.
Guercia then tried to pull the car over and get out. After he appeared unsteady, officers administered a field sobriety test, which Guercia flunked, cops said.
Officers said they found two oxycodone pills in his car and placed Guercia under arrest.
He was charged with two counts of aggravated DWI under Leandra's law, which makes it a felony to drive while intoxicated with a child under the age of 15.
Guercia was also charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, driving while ability impaired, failure to stay in a single lane and operating an uninsured motor vehicle.
